Ingredients
  • 2 Red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 lb. Ground bison
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Large egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp steak sauce
  • 1 tsp Steak seasoning
  • 1 tsp Fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 slices Sargento Mild Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • 4 Pretzel buns
  • 4 Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 8 Slices Peppered bacon, cooked
Directions
  1. Combine onion, vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl. Cover and let stand for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, combine bison, breadcrumbs, egg, 1 Tbsp of steak sauce, seasoning & pepper in a medium bowl. Cover & chill for 15 minutes. Shape mixture into 4 patties slightly larger than the buns they’re going to be served on.
  3. Heat a grill to medium-high. Cook patties on well-greased grill for 3 minutes per side or until cooked to your liking. Top each patty with cheese just before removing from the grill.
  4. Cook buns on same grill for 1 to 2 minutes until toasted and grill marks appear.
  5. To assemble the burgers: Drain the onion from its pickling liquid. Place bun halves on boards or plates. Add lettuce, patties, bacon, extra steak sauce and pickled onion; replace bun tops.
